  • It's hard to imagine a time before likes.

  • Or sliding into DMs, or face filters, or memes.

  • We're obsessed with social media, and all the oversharing that comes with it.

  • Not everyone needs to be up in your business.

  • Go private, from Twitter to Instagram, you can delete your location, along with personal details like your email, or phone number.

  • Depending on your platform, you can also control who's able to tag you in photos.

  • All this and more can be found in your privacy settings.

  • Next, delete any post that gives away sensitive information.

  • Your address, pet names, and things you use in security questions can be easily found in your social feeds.

  • To make life really difficult for social stalkers, use different profile pictures so they can't find all of your accounts at once.

  • Avoid using social media to log into other sites.

  • You're paying for that convenience by giving both sites access to some pretty personal details.

  • Including the articles you read, that costume you bought for your cat, and who you know.

  • On Facebook, go to the apps and websites page to see what sites already have access.

  • Select the sites you want removed, or disable all of them.

  • Our favorite social platforms use human psychology to keep us locked in.

  • The longer we stay on, the more ads they can show us, and the more they get paid.

  • It's problematic for us but super easy for them.

  • Facebook is a prime example of this.

  • They know everything you do on and off Facebook.

  • And they use that juicy data to their advantage.

  • Create some distance by adding the Facebook container extension to Firefox.

  • The extension blocks Facebook from following your visits to other sites, so you can browse in peace.

  • Love your selfie, and everything that comes with it, by keeping your business, yours.

It's hard to imagine a time before likes.
